Elevator Pitch: “The Epic of Hershey” is a short film based off a viral article about a homeless boy who seeks salvation from a powerful goddess living in the ocean. After venturing through the darkest parts of NYC, he descends to the bottom of the Hudson river and accidentally speaks the true name of the Blue Lady and is saved by her. On his way back home he meets an older man who has recently become homeless that Hershey tells all about his journey. The man doesn’t believe Hershey’s story, and they have a contentious argument over whether or not its real.
